Abstract

A growing crystal or any other object is said to have an instability when its surface does not remain planar but instead develops patterns such as dendrites. After a short outline of the instabilities in growth from the melt or solution or vapour, a detailed analysis is given of the instabilities in molecular beam epitaxy (MBE).
